This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1809 edition. Excerpt: ...his fate awhile, And Whitehead, thou to write his Epitaph.--MANHATTAN CITY: A PICTURE. FAIR mistress of a warlike State, What crime of thine deserves this fate? While other ports to Freedom rise, In thee that flame of honour die6.
